BAKLA: A QUEER PILIPINX SHORT SCENE by SARAH MADERAL
“ Sarah Maderal (@sarahmaderal) is a writer, artist and performer. They use she/her and they/them pronouns. They performed this scene to come out to their parents as part of a larger play titled Secrets Exposed which was a collection of works by the US in the U.S. theater ensemble (@us.in.the.u.s). In the future, they hope to continue acting in the Bay Area and healing through solidarity. “
Thank you, Sarah for sharing this beautiful duo scene and your story. I hope Secrets Exposed can be performed again soon; I would love to see this scene. Not only is this scene so impactful, it educates the masses on the “bakla” gender identity that was common in the Philippines before colonization. It is so amazing that through your gender identity, you connected with your ancestors. This was heartwarming.
